This is a small park overlooking the Mississippi river. Although you are near the river, you are more than 100 feet above it. You can see a lot of the river and the farming ground in Illinois across the river.

My husband and I came here in May. Not knowing what to expect, I fell for the "there's no mosquitoes " line. Yes, there were! More views of the Mighty Mississippi!!
